Commercial premises and business parks face two main security challenges: keeping occupants safe, and protecting buildings and contents. Often, the premises are readily accessible to the general public and as such can be targeted by potential vandals and thieves.

Buildings have multiple entry and exit points that need to be secured, and access needs to be restricted to authorized personnel within defined business hours. In many cases the premises are jointly tenanted so have additional requirements around restricting access to individual areas, as well as managing shared facilities such as carparking and common foyers.
